Last Sunday was our annual BBQ event. We were joined in Oizumi Ryokuchi – Sakai City by students and their families from Smith’s Sakai Higashi(月謝制のスミス英会話 堺東校) and Smith’s Nakamozu(月謝制のスミス英会話 なかもず校). Despite it being a very hot summers day, we had a good turn out. The youngsters having fun with water pistols all day helped take the edge off the heat.
I really enjoy the opportunity to speak with my students on a more personal level outside of the classroom and equally glad to be able to hold events at which they can practice natural English. I believe the ability to speak in normal situations is the driving force behind most of my students wanting to study at an English conversation school(えいかいわ). It gives me satisfaction to see my students taking advantage of such events.
As promised, I brought and (over) cooked some kangaroo that most people were able to have a taste of. It has quite a gamey flavor but as no one doubled over grasping at their stomachs, I guess people thought it tasted OK. It will be interesting to see if they want more ‘roo at the next BBQ!
If you are interested in spending a day in this great park Oizumi Ryokuchi you can head north on the Midosuji line from Midosuji Nakamozu (地下鉄御堂筋線なかもず駅)station and get off at the Midosuji Shinkanoka(地下鉄御堂筋線新金岡駅) station. From there it is about a ten minute walk to the park.
Our next event will be an adults only quiz night – stay tuned!
